The External Assessment for units 1 and 3 will be a mixture of short-answer, structured and free-response questions.

There is no tiering.

For assessments and subject awards after June 2013 there is a requirement that 100% of the assessment is terminal.

Important change

This year we will no longer be sending out hard copy OPTEMS forms (optically scanned mark sheets) for you to submit controlled assessment marks. This means that all marks will need to be submitted online via Edexcel Online.

So… no more waiting for OPTEMS to arrive in the post and instead you will need to familiarise yourself with the process of submitting marks online. This is a straightforward process which is covered below.

How do I submit my controlled assessment marks to Pearson?

You can no longer submit marks on an OPTEMS form (optically scanned mark sheets) so all marks must be submitted online via Edexcel Online. 

Watch how to submit your controlled assessment marks online

For each student you should submit the raw mark out of 50. Please do not try to double the mark or convert it into a percentage, grade or UMS mark. Please also remember that there are no separate additional marks for SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) in controlled assessment.

Important: You may need to amend your Edexcel Online access to allow you to submit controlled assessment marks online. To do this your exams officer will need to go into your Edexcel Online account and under ‘profiles’ tick the box next to ‘Coursework and Portfolio’. If they also tick the ‘Results’ box you will be able to view your E9 moderator report on results day.

Watch how to change your account profile

After submitting marks online you should print out a copy of the marks for the moderator and a copy for your own records.

Where is the Edexcel Online link?

Links can be found on the Edexcel website.

Access Edexcel Online

If you need to be set up with an Edexcel Online account please ask your exams officer.

If you’ve forgotten your Edexcel Online password you can generate a new one.

What happens if I make an error when submitting controlled assessment marks?

If you have already submitted a mark but it needs to be amended (eg because of an administrative error), please email courseworkmarks@pearson.com with details of the student and amended point score.

When will I be able to access Edexcel Online to submit marks and see the requested sample?

You should be able to start submitting marks now but you won’t be able to view the requested sample until the beginning of April 2017.

How do I identify the sample of work that needs to be sent to the moderator?

When you log in to Edexcel Online and go to the controlled assessment mark submission screen there will be a tick next to the candidates' names that need to be sent for moderation. You also need to send the work of the highest- and lowest-scoring candidates if they are not part of the requested sample.

If, for some reason, you're unable to send the work for a particular student, you should send the work of an equivalent student with a similar mark. You should also write a note to the moderator explaining the reason for the change.

What is the deadline for submitting controlled assessment marks?

The final date for submitting GCSE Health and Social Care controlled assessment marks and samples of work for the summer 2017 series is 15 May 2017.

This is the date by which you must have submitted your controlled assessment marks to us via Edexcel Online, and have sent your sample of student work to the moderator. Please note that your Exams Officer will have their own internal deadlines.

Where a centre has been affected by circumstances beyond its control, it may, in exceptional cases, be possible for us to grant a short extension. Requests must be sent to the Health and Social Care assessment team at btecdelivery@pearson.com.

Who is my moderator and what is their address?

Moderators are randomly allocated to centres. You will be able to find out your moderator’s name and address from early April via Edexcel Online.

Watch how to find your moderator details

Your centre will receive a stationery send which will contain envelopes suitable for sending controlled assessment to the moderator.

Complete portfolio of work for one student must also be sent

Please note that for controlled assessment submitted in summer 2017 you are required to send the complete portfolio of work for one student. This is a requirement for the strengthened GCSE specification to ensure that all the required content is taught. The portfolio must include work carried out by the student and copies of all handouts and other materials provided by the teacher for the entire controlled assessment task.

The student whose portfolio of work is to be submitted will not be known until you have identified the requested sample via Edexcel Online. When the students who are required for the moderation sample are identified (with a tick next to their name), you need to find the student with the second highest mark total within the overall required sample and send this student’s complete portfolio of work.

If, for some reason, this student’s complete portfolio of work is unavailable, send the portfolio of next highest scoring student in the sample.

What other materials need to be sent to the moderator?

Materials you need to send to the moderator are:

  • Sample of student work
  • Complete portfolio of work for one student
  • Edexcel Online print out of student marks
  • Relevant students' notes, plans and bibliographies
  • Copy of your third representation
  • Students' individual candidate authentication sheets

Where can I find the controlled assessment forms?

You can find the forms on the relevant qualification page under ‘forms and administration’:
